In my last post I talked about spam comments in blogs and how to stop them. I found out my Akismet (spam catcher plugin) got uninstalled for some reason. And that is why the spam was just pouring in.

I uploaded the plugin again and installed. And guess what in the past 2 days Akismet stopped about 30 spam comments! Phew I love that plugin. So if you have a blog and getting a lot of spam comments. Download Akismet.

These days Akismet comes pre installed in WordPress. All you have to do is to register at WordPress. You will be given an API key. all you have to do is to enter the API key and your Akismet plugin is activated.
